Wait For It.... - Day 9

Yesterday we talked about going with your gut and seizing the moment.
Today we're talking about the opposite: having patience to wait for the perfect shot.

During this past summer the kids and I went to the Iowa State Fair.
I think it was the second day we went that my daughter fell asleep, so she and I sat in the shade while my son and mom watched a show. We were fairly close to the sky lift and I spent a lot of my time watching the people glide above me. During people watching I decided I wanted to capture a pink gondola sans passengers.
And so I waited...and waited...and waited.
{Y'all would not believe how many pink chairs there were with people in them!}

Finally, I was able to get my shot.

And it was exactly what I wanted.
Sometimes good things are worth waiting for.
